Technology alone cannot enhance the learning taking place within a classroom; it takes strategic planning from a content, pedagogical, and technological standpoint. In Coachella Valley Unified School District, we recently completed an iPad initiative that served over 1,000 staff members and over 21,000 students. In order to prepare teachers and administrators for the Common Core State Standards, our Educational Technology Department developed a 5 part workshop that progresses teachers and administrators through the SAMR Model. Upon successful completion of the program, staff members gain the title of SAMR Advanced Instructors. In addition to Dr. Puentedura’s SAMR Model, the workshops also highlight the TPACK framework to train staff members about the importance of using technology in conjunction with rigorous content knowledge and engaging pedagogical practices. The SAMRai workshops also include Webb’s Depth of Knowledge, which will prepare participants to equip students for the cognitive challenges necessary for the 21st Century.
This workshop provides a one-hour condensed version of CVUSD’s SAMR Advanced Instructor program. Participants will understand TPACK, SAMR, and Webb’s Depth of Knowledge to learn how they are all interconnected. Content, Pedagogy, and Technology must work intertwined to truly enhance student learning. Upon understanding how these areas work together, participants will learn strategies to help them effectively move up the SAMR Model. The final part of the session will allow participants to begin looking at lesson design and lesson task development, while also gaining insight from video lesson demonstrations and first-hand experiences from presenters and participants in attendance.

Upon leaving this workshop, participants will have a deeper understanding of how SAMR, TPACK, and Webb’s DOK work cohesively to meet the rigor of CCSS and 21st Century Learning. Participants will also have answered the following questions:
What is SAMR and how can I use it in my classroom?
Which strategies and apps allow me to move across the 4 levels of SAMR?
How can I begin training my staff so they are aware of and able to use SAMR strategies?
How does technology support the Common Core State Standards? How can teachers utilize technology with their students to prepare them for the 21st Century?
